Becoming a certified wreck diver in Malta

With scuba diving in tropical colourful reefs, I think wreck diving should come next on the list of reasons why people dream of becoming scuba divers. The legends of famous ships and their hidden treasures are often the reasons to explore these historic artificial reefs. Whether you are passionate by the history of the ships, or you just love the challenge of scuba diving through a complex

A weekend in Valletta before diving all around Malta

Knowing that Malta is one of the most touristic places in South Europe, I didn’t want to limit my experience to a seaside resort town even if the primary purpose of my 10-day holiday in the Mediterranean archipelago was scuba diving.
